I call this phenomenon "time contraction", where as one gets older, the same lengths of time seemingly appear to be contracted, shortened like a muscle. The opposite is time dilation, where time seemingly appears to be extended.

I can say that it's not impossible to experience time dilation even at an advanced age. But it might be impossible to explain how.
